My pill time is 10:30 PM. I have been taking my pills on schedule, except for a late one last week. However, last night I pushed the pill out of the pack and it bounced off of the counter right into the trash! These pills are absolutely tiny, and there was no way I could dump the trash and look for it, it's insanitary and I probably wouldn't find it anyway.

So, what do I do? I didn't want to take the next one, because then my placebos would be off-schedule, so I just didn't take one. Was this a good decision? What will happen? I never completely missed one before.

Also, I forgot that I didn't take one last night. My boyfriend touched himself when pre-ejaculate could have been present, and the same hand was on and around my vulva shortly after. Just brushing across it, but still, should I be worried about this?

Thanks in advance everyone.

You should really be okay, here. Consider this cycle compromised, in terms of protection from pregnancy, and make sure you use protection. Your withdrawl bleed COULD be a bit wonky, though, so be aware of that. Missing pills, like stress, can wreak havoc.

Your "risk" is hardly much of one, so you should be fine. [Smile] In the future, use gloves and/or wash hands in between genital contact.
